The EU should encourage the eastern states, not forgetting about the democratic values observance, the EU Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fule said during the Wroclaw Global Forum 2012.

 “We are too careful. We should send positive signals to our eastern partners. We must inspire them to move as far and as fast as possible through the tightest political association and economic integration with the European Union," the Commissioner said.

"However, we must insist on their observance of certain values and principles, as any compromise will ultimately result in the EU weakening," Fule said.

The Commissioner also noted that globalization does not stop at the borders of Europe. Therefore, the EU should implement more effective neighborhood policies.

As reported, On March 30, 2012, the heads of delegations initialed the Association Agreement, including deep and comprehensive free trade area, during the talks between Ukraine and the EU.
